USYS National Championships

Day 3 (Photos and write up by Boxley Llewellyn)

The day started with a low fog but cleared by kickoff.

The Wake 14U (in blue) girls needed a win to advance to the semifinals, and they matched goals with Wasatch SC from Utah before dropping behind 3-2.  The girls played maybe their best match of the tourney with scoring and defending magic moments.  Wasatch was an excellent team.

Our NCFC girls (in gray) may have had no statistical chance of advancing, but still played a spirited game of long passes and big runs at goal, finishing ahead at 3-1 vs. Total Futbol Academy of Ohio.   Goals do a lot to add good memories to the tournament.  And a personalized cookie from the coach helps, too!

Day 2 (Photos and write up by Boxley Llewellyn)

Our second day of matches at the National Championships in Florida went as yesterday - the first team to score wins.  Unfortunately, our NC teams did not score first, and both our 14U and 18U girls lost.  They created many chances, a few close plays in the box, and a long, hot second half with lots of good play.   

It was a hot day with 104 teams playing on a sunny morning.  The afternoon games had some clouds, which added a breeze and kept the “feels like” temperature to around 100 degrees.  Cold water is the new gold.  

14UG WFC played in blue today against a team from NJ dropping a close 0-1 match.  The parents worked as hard as the players.

Day 1 (Photos and write up by Boxley Llewellyn)

First, WakeFC 14 girls (in white) beat South Carolina’s Surf SC 2–0, scoring after a four-touch goal in the first thirty seconds.  I didn’t even have the camera ready.

Wake scored again before the first water break and held on.

NCFC 18 girls (in blue) gave up an early goal, and then, in the hottest part of the day, fought for every ball against a tall/fast/strong Utah club believed to be their toughest competition.  Clouds cooled the last 20 minutes and the NCFC girls had the better side, with shots bouncing around in the box as the whistle blew on a 0-1 loss, unfortunately.
